True stories of healing and forgiveness Carmel Thomason

Forgiveness is central to our faith because it is central to life. No relationship can survive without the ability to forgive, but sometimes we are hurt so deeply or so often that forgiveness appears impossible. This collection of inspirational true stories demonstrate the healing power of forgiveness through ordinary people's experiences of war, crime, terrorism, betrayal, relationship breakdown and the uncertainty of life's path. Aimed at both individual reflection and group study, each story is followed by thoughts from a practitioner or church leader, which can be used to open a conversation about what you've just read, and questions to help you think about the wider issues raised.

All-Age Worship (Kindle eBook)

All-Age Worship (Kindle eBook)

Fully revised and updated Lucy Moore

Noooooo!

The prospect of all-age worship can produce a cry of anguish from many people. It's time to admit that worship with all ages present is easy to do appallingly and difficult to do well. But it's also time to admit that a church which unthinkingly packs off any group, old or young, to worship and learn in another space every week could well be completely daft...

This book is for those who sense that worshipping God together is probably a good thing, but are nervous of trying to lead their church towards that vision. It acknowledges that we don't live in a perfect world - or church - and that no one has all the answers. It also argues that you are the expert for the ways in which your church can best worship God, and helps you start to find those ways and adapt them for your local setting.

Comings and Goings (Kindle eBook)

Retracing the Christmas story through place and time Gordon Giles

Life involves many 'comings and goings', as we make our way along the path of faith day by day, guided by God's Holy Spirit. This book of readings for Advent and Christmas invites us to make a journey through time, from the end to the very beginning of all things. The daily reflections work backwards from the traditional Advent focus of the 'Four Last Things' - Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell - via Jesus' life, death and resurrection, to come at last to the Incarnation and the events commemorated at Christmas itself. In the following days, the focus turns to Christ as the Word of God, present at the dawn of creation. Along the way, we 'visit' some of the actual Holy Land sites associated with gospel events, drawing new insights from the familiar stories.

Daily readings and reflections for the Advent journey Rachel Boulding

This book of daily Bible readings and reflections for Advent and Christmas is based around spiritual insights gleaned from some of the best-loved poets of the past - TS Eliot, George Herbert, Tennyson and Auden, among others. While they come from different ages and backgrounds, they wrestled with the same questions that we do, about God, love, hope, and suffering. This book is not a literary study of their work, but a quest to see what they can tell us about life and faith today. Their poems are quoted in short sections, with suggestions about what they might mean for us now.

Ancient ways for modern churches Simon Reed

In Creating Community, Simon Reed introduces us to a new but at the same time very old way of being church which is based upon three core elements: a Way of Life, a network of Soul Friends, and a rhythm of prayer.

Discipling Generation Y (Kindle eBook)

Themes from Revelation for youth ministry Steve Griffiths

When it comes to discipling Generation Y - those born between 1980 and 2000 - we need to acknowledge that they speak a different cultural language from the rest of us. This is a generation on a passionate quest to find their identity amid a barrage of online information and entertainment, a generation at ease with an astonishing level of global connectivity. Even so, the process of discipleship remains essentially what it always was. Ultimately, we want our young people to be happy and fulfilled. We seek to introduce them into a way of living that takes seriously Jesus Christ as 'the way, the truth and the life' (John 14:6). This book shows how Revelation offers one of the clearest biblical explorations of Kingdom values at work in highly challenging circumstances.

The post - resurrection encounters between Jesus and the disciples provide us with some of the most profound and personal moments to be found in all of Scripture. The risen Christ comes to his disciples in all their brokenness - their sadness, fear, doubt, shattered dreams and failure - and calls them to a future filled with hope, confidence, confirmed faith, new beginnings and restored lives.

Everything I know about God, I learned from being a parent (Kindle eBook)

The Bible tells us that God is 'the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name' (Ephesians 3:15). If earthly families gain their nature from God's parenthood, what might our experience of family tell us about the nature of God? That is the question on which this book focuses. Veronica Zundel roots her reflections in her journey into and through parenthood, a hard journey that led through infertility, late motherhood and then learning to parent a child with special needs. What she learned along the way - about love and sacrifice, faithfulness and forgiveness - had a profound impact on her understanding of what God feels about us, his most beloved children.

Hilda of Whitby (Kindle eBook)

A spirituality for now Ray Simpson

In the dark and turbulent centuries after the Roman occupation of Britain, and during the Anglo-Saxon colonisation, the light of heaven still shone through the work and witness of the monastic communities, 'villages of God', which dotted the land. One of the most remarkable figures of those times was Hilda of Whitby. Born and reared amid warring pagan tribes, through the influence of Celtic saints and scholars she became a dominant figure in the development of the British Church, above all at the famous Synod where Celtic and Roman Churches came together. Until recently, though, the story of this extraordinary woman has not received much attention.

This book is not about living through infertility, as though this was a tunnel on the way to some ultimate destination of child-bearing. It is about living within infertility, continuing to have a spiritual life, and doing something more than simply sitting around waiting for a baby.

God does know the pain of infertility and childlessness. He has been here before us, he is sharing this sorrow with us, and he already knows how this story will end.'

Reflections for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany Rodney Holder

The book also explores the traditional Advent focus on the 'four last things', death, judgment, heaven and hell. Rodney Holder shows how these sombre themes have their place in the build-up to the celebrations, because of another historic aspect of Advent: reflecting on the second coming of Jesus, when he will return, as Lord and King rather than helpless baby, to set the world to rights.

Paul as Pastor (Kindle eBook)

Paul as Pastor (Kindle eBook)

Biblical insights for pastoral ministry Patrick Whitworth

When we think of the apostle Paul, 'pastor' is not usually the first word that springs to mind. He may seem too intellectual, too tempestuous and fiery, even too determinedly pioneering, to fall into the 'pastoral' category. This book demonstrates that, at heart, Paul was indeed too multi-faceted in both background and ministry to be defined by a single function. Author Patrick Whitworth makes the case for Paul's extraordinary teaching - for which he is justifiably most celebrated - being a product of his pastoral care, which was itself a product of his pioneering and prophetic evangelism. Perhaps he was an unlikely pastor, but he was above all passionate, and an inspiration to pastors everywhere, to be studied and emulated, fathomed and then followed.

Pioneering a New Future (Kindle eBook)

A guide to shaping change and changing the shape of church Phil Potter

This book offers a map for pioneering a new future for the Church. Writing as a pastor and practitioner, Phil Potter explains ways of shaping all kinds of change in the life of a church, particularly in the context of the many 'fresh expressions of church' emerging. Decisions on what and how and when we change will inevitably affect growth or decline in a church, and also have a major impact on people. Leaders can end up burnt out by their attempts to bring about change, while congregations are left damaged and disillusioned because they could not catch the vision. This is a book for leaders wanting to guide their Christian communities into a new future, and for church members wanting to be equipped for whatever lies ahead. Also included are over 100 questions for personal and group reflection.

Praying the Bible with Luther (Kindle eBook)

Praying the Bible with Luther (Kindle eBook)

A simple approach to everyday prayer Michael Parsons

Praying biblically and with intent. There is a need in today's church to relate scripture and prayer in such a way as to enable us to speak God's words after him. This book takes a simple lectio divina approach developed in the sixteenth century by Martin Luther and offers practical guidance to pray in this way. Beginning each time of prayer with a Bible passage, Luther would meditate on it with four 'strands' in mind: teaching, thanksgiving, repentance and supplication. Then he would pray, having his thoughts shaped by his reading, praying God's words after him, confident of God's grace. Praying the Bible with Luther explains this method, demonstrates it and encourages readers to follow his example, helping us to turn scripture into prayer and to pray it into our own lives today.

A portrait of Christ and a pattern for his followers Tony Horsfall

Servanthood is something to which all believers are called, not just those in full-time ministry, and so understanding what servanthood means is vital for the health and well-being of local churches. Every member needs to appreciate their role as a servant of God. Servant Ministry offers a practical exposition of the first 'Servant Song' based in Isaiah (42:1-9). Writing from many years of Christian teaching and mentoring, Tony Horsfall applies insights drawn from the Isaiah passage to topics such as the motivation for service and the call to serve; valid expressions of servanthood and the link between evangelism and social action; character formation and what it means to be a servant; how to keep going over the long haul in the harsh realities of ministry; the importance of listening to God on a daily basis and also over a whole lifetime.

Learning to lead from the still centre Ian Cowley

There was a time where Christian ministry offered the opportunity to spend your life in the study of God's word, in reading and reflection, in prayer and sermon preparation, and in the quiet and faithful pastoral care of a community. The world has changed, and with it most of the expectations that govern church appointments. These days there are very few jobs in full time ministry which do not require a heroic combination of stamina, multi-tasking and change management. This book gives practical advice on how to nurture faith and a sense of calling amid the hectic life that is ministry today. Drawing on his experience of developing and leading training programmes in this area, Ian Cowley assesses the stresses and pressures of the job and shows how to grow into being a 'contemplative minister', prioritising a relationship of deepening love with God. He also offers guidance on leading others into that same relationship, without your own spiritual life running dry.
